Natalie's Score: 90/100

Classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from one of the country's best producers. Crisp, zippy notes of gooseberry and fresh cut grass on the nose open up with green apple, chives and lemongrass on the palate. Medium-bodied and mouth-watering. This wine makes an excellent companion to many dishes from pork chops to seafood, as well as a lovely aperitif.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: fresh seafood, vegetarian dishes.

Karen Anderson rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

This wine speaks to me of spring and summer. My nose gets first blush apricots all the way through to summer peaches. On the palate the finish has a surprising pineapple hit. When people say they like crisp wine, I think of this one.
Its a good "house white" and is fun for parties as it will appeal to many.
I'd like to go to New Zealand's Marlborough region to see the soil that delivers such fine sauvignon grapes.
Food: It went wonderfully with the spring pea and grilled shrimp risotto I made this evening.
I hope to drink this steadily till the day I die. I'll only lay it down when I finally lie down for good!
Wanda rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine offers plenty of citrus notes. Crisp, aromatic and fresh it's an easy to drink summer wine that packs a flavourful punch.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Every Kim Crawford wine I have tried so far, I have loved. And this one was no different. My favorite Sauvignon Blancs come out of the Marlborough Region of New Zealand and this is one of the examples why they are known for Sauvignon Blanc. A flavorful wine with beautiful acidity and lush tropical fruit flavors.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
